This watch is incredible! I love the atomic TV case. This watch was made by the Ideal Watch Co. in the 1950’s. The fonts are the best!

Swell Toys of the Space Age

December 17, 2008

The kids growing up in the 1950’s and 1960’s must have had a BLAST playing with these toys! Not only are the toys incredible; I love the packaging as well!  I found these on EBay.
